Hi all first, I am sick of apples restrictions and their greedy way of doing things. My friend gave me his old ipod touch 2g, 8gb. I tried installing apps... But you cant because it is stuck on 4.2.1 Ios. So I am going to jailbreak the dang thing!!!

Anyways the problem. I downloaded quickpwn on my macbook pro because it was what I saw suggested. However, once downloaded, installed and ready to go. It asks me to plug in my ipod, I do so... Than nothing happens. Nothing at all. Well lets just say, since this is my first time, I am so confused. Plus I dont understand macs all that well either... My school forced me to get it instead of a windows laptop. Any and all help would be more than appreciated!

I don't remember if it applies, but try going to jailbreakme.com on the iPod and see if you can't jailbreak from there.

If that doesn't do it, follow this tutorial.

Though I do suggest you edit your post about the apps bit, as you don't have to jailbreak to install apps from the App Store. Some people could imply something you may or may not mean.

Edit it? How should I edit it lol. Its the reason why I want to jailbreak it, most apps require that your Ios is at least 4.3. What I am trying to do is simply get apps onto it. Anyways, thanks guys for the help!

If the app has that requirement I don't think getting the app from a diff source will change that ..

And noone here can help with getting apps for other sources because it is against forum rules to get apps that way

As far as jailbreaking I would look at iclairified website they have step by step of how to do it

Alright, so I am now trying to use the redsn0w application to jailbreak the ipod. However, I think the Ipod is broken now.... Whenever I try to boot the ipod up through redsn0w it freezes, it shows the apple symbol, than has the circling loading bar. Yet it stops and does nothing, and redsn0w is waiting for it to reboot... Itunes wont recognize it, and I cannot go any further than this. what did I do wrong?

Wait, its against forum rules to help someone jailbreak an ipod, than to trick it into having 4.3 Ios, so that I can download apps? Huh... I am confused than....

It's against rules to download apps from places other than the apps store
not to jailbreak that why I'm trying to help you jailbreak ...

If there is a way to trick it to run 4.3 that is beyond me I've never heard of a tweak that does that

Darn, well than. Thanks for helping me. Anyways so I did as you said, put it back into dfu, and still the same problem. Is my Ipod just screwed?

It's never screwed I would but in dfu and then do a normal restore in iTunes then try the jailbreak again with redsnow

you just need to install cydia, none of the boot logo crap...


however your desire for a jailbreak may be misguided here,
even if you gain access to the plists and edit them to spoof your phone to a hgiher firmware, lik 4.3.3 doesnt man that apps will work on it. quite the opposite, you will install and app try to launch it and have a crash either back to srpingboard or even to safemode!..

also the device is so old school and so slow that not many jailbreak tweaks are even going to work for you anymore.

just a heads up

Well that looks like what I must do with it anyways, redsn0w keeps making the ipod freeze. Sad, its the first media player I own of its type, I dont have the money sadly to ever get anything like this. I want an android tablet... But before I can afford anything like that I need to pay for school. Oh well, I guess I will just get spotify premium, fill it up with all the music I would ever want/need. Plus I do get to play my childhood favored retro game on it. Shining force! Well thanks guys for the help.
